Sunday Tittle Tattle

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks…

Sorry that this Sunday Tittle Tattle is late; I’ve had my sister staying with me and we’ve been having ever so much fun! Here we go with this week’s news…

1) It’s Breast Cancer Awareness month and this year it’s the 20th Anniversary of the campaign. Estée Lauder are always very proactive in their support for BCA and this year is no different – as well as a gorgeous range of “pink products” (including a beautiful face powder compact, above), campaign ambassador and spokesperson Elizabeth Hurley is making two special appearances in London and Manchester this week. You can see her at Selfridges Oxford Street on Monday 8th from 1-2pm and at the Manchester Trafford Centre on Thursday 11th from 1-2pm and she’ll be signing limited edition Breast Cancer Awareness purchases.

2) Winners of the Manuka Recovery Cream giveaway are: Samantha Ellis, Nathan ([email protected]), Tracy Troughton, Jeni Red and Kirsten Ralley. Well done you lot – an email will bee winging its way to you all shortly!

3) On the subject of Giveaways, have you entered yesterday’s one for the NUDE ProGenius oils? This oil is fabulous – a real all-in-one skin-saver. You can open that post in a new window and enter the giveaway HERE.

4) Can I get a show of hands on something? Cooking, health and diet posts: likey or no likey? I’d love to know.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday – I’m about to go and catch the last ten minutes of Dragons’ Den!

      Also, took advantage of your PAIEYE deal, thank you very much! Also x2, I’d written a post n your Polo makeup video asking which Givenchy prisme you’d used. I bought #8, ‘Fancy Coffee’ and after much online research and colour comparing (many windows open!) I think you used #9 Modish Brown(?)… Anyway after all that, the one I had grew on me so I think I’ll be keeping the ‘Coffee’! :) Have fun with your sister, yay!

        Yes, I think I have both! I just used 9 in a Telegraph video that’s about to go up, so it could well have been 9 that I used for the Polo too.. xx

    Hey Ruth!
    The cooking videos are great! Have tried two recipes so far and they were very very delicious! (The one with the mackerel and the eggplant pasta) So I’d love to get to know more recipes from you!

    Yes please more health and food videos!! We’ve tried 2 of your recipes and they were fresh and delicious, I really like your down to earth attitude to diet and eating… cooking at home instead of having stodgy takeaways, not getting uptight about a bit of carb or dairy etc.
    My sister and I have just done 90 days 90 salads, and I’m hoping we’ll do another 90. We’ve been posting a photo each day of a salad we’ve eaten, sometimes feeling lazy I’ll make a fruit salad or just chop up some vege sticks, and she’s been ordering salads when she eats out. It’s been a fun way to up the fruit and vege intake, and to keep in touch as we live in different cities (in NZ).Loving your blog, thank you!!!

    I think you should perhaps consider doing a desserts video? We brits LOVE a good pudding but would really like to make something that is easy, delicious which doesn’t equat to 2000 calories per spoonful! That would be a very interesting video. Also, how about some books you’ve read recently? That could also be a nice post :) xx

    I’d love to see another cooking/diet/health post, preferably about healthy breakfast! I’ve always been struggling with breakfast (not hungry in the morning/in a hurry), so we often ended up on the kitchen floor. haha. ha.
    Seriously though, that would be interesting! x

    Show of hands on Cooking, health and diet posts. Here it is!!! Honestly, I love most healthy foods, I am addicted to veggies. But if only chocolate, sugar, sweets ,cheese butter and alcohol was healthy… Life would be so much simpler. So please, keep those healthy choices, recipes and diet vids coming. I need all the inspiration I can get to keep on track. Hugs from Holland!

You always have such beautifully manicured nails, how do you get your polish to last even one day without smudging, cracking or peeling??
